“Who are Aston Villa playing today,” I asked, innocently.
“Wednesday,” my friend replied.
“No, who are they playing.”
“No, they’re playing today, and today is Saturday. I would like to know which team they are playing against.”
“Ah!” said my friend. “I see wherein lies the confusion. Because Aston Villa are playing Wednesday.”
At this point I slapped my friend. This was no time for japing. I needed this information. I needed to know who Aston Villa were playing, when it was happening, and where I could follow along. “Just tell me what I need to know!”
My friend trembled. “Aston Villa play Wednesday, and if you don’t believe me and need that information, just read below this.”
I did, and I found everything I needed.
